The competition is on! Columbus Technical College, and its sister schools in the Technical College System of Georgia, are searching for the best of the best for 2013. Each year, top students are recommended by instructors for possibly earning bragging rights as the GOAL (Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership) winner from their school. The school winner will compete at a regional level and then on to the state. If named the winner for Georgia, the GOAL student holds the title for a year where he or she will travel the state in a newly-won car, touting the benefits of technical education.
The top four finalists from Columbus Technical College are Brittney Edwards and Eric Robinson from the Paralegal Studies program, Karliss Preyer from Business Management, and Jordan Buckelew — a Diagnostic Medical Sonography student. The winner from Columbus Technical College will be announced at the meeting of the North Columbus Rotary Club on February 5th. Congratulations to all the finalists!
